Not-So-Fried Okra

A healthy twist on one of your favorite Southern dishes!

 This simple, and healthier alternative, is perfect for people that say the only way they will eat okra is fried. Okra gives it the taste and the bread crumbs give it the crunch.
It works best with the very small pods, but the larger ones will work if cut into smaller pieces. The very large pods (3”-4”) do not work well with this recipe!

-3 cups okra (cut in half)
-3 tbls olive oil
-½ cup bread crumbs (or enough to cover the okra)
-Salt and pepper to taste

-If the okra are very small (1” or less) you can use whole with cap intact, otherwise cut washed pod in half horizontally and place in a bowl.
-Salt and pepper lightly (I like a little garlic powder too) and mix well.
-Heat olive oil on medium setting in a large frying pan and add okra pods when hot.
-Sautee okra for 5-6 minutes or until tender. Thicker and older pods may take longer.
-Add bread crumbs to the pan and stir until okra is evenly coated.
-Remove from pan when bread crumbs start to brown.

Tennessee Sweet Potato Squash

You have probably seen this vegetable being sold by Salamander Springs and not known exactly what it was. The Tennessee Sweet Potato Squash is considered to be a pumpkin and squash heirloom variety. It is most often used to make pies or served as a side dish, similar to yams.
